Can you talk about your career journey and choosing investment management at MacKay?
I started my career as an IT Consultant but after 5+ years of traveling and working on various IT projects I decided to explore a career change. I enrolled at a business school not knowing what path I would be taking, but found myself really interested in corporate finance and accounting. Post-graduation I worked at an investment bank that unfortunately went belly-up in 2008. However, I was fortunate to escape the aftermath and have worked a variety of research roles since investing in high-yield and leveraged loans. I collaborated with MacKay on a consent that got me talking to some of the folks here and the rest is history. I joined MacKay late in 2021. What drew me to the team in particular was the well-defined research process, and the collaborative and collegial team culture, which is a rarity in our industry.
